"The Nuclear Trap" - Director's statement
“Those who champion nuclear energy view the world through an industry, the decline of which they refuse to acknowledge. The revolution of renewables underway in our societies is seen as an attack. They stubbornly maintain that nuclear power generates safer and cheaper electricity than all the other energy sources… Our film strives to demonstrate that not only is this argument wrong, but that it is concealing a disastrous financial reality: the bill that future generations will have to pay due to nuclear power is colossal. Each nuclear disaster (Chernobyl, Fukushima), by increasing the obligation for new safety measures, sends costs spiralling and results in the construction of prototypes such as the EPR, which is exorbitant and so technologically complicated that many engineers are now saying that it will never work.” Patrick Benquet.
SEAS attended the Cabinet meeting at Suffolk County Council on January 14th where Councillor Richard Rout, Cabinet Member for Environment and Public Protection, presented their response to SPR's DCO proposals for offshore windfarms East Anglia One North (EA1N) and East Anglia Two (EA2). Find out exactly what your local Suffolk County Councillors have said to add weight to your Representations.
Plans for offshore windfarms off the Suffolk coast have not been thought through adequately, says Suffolk County Council. Among the issues raised were the visual impact on the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, impact on tourism, the severe effects on the village of Friston, doubts about the planting mitigation, noise and disturbance on communities and road networks.
